Question from Jim (IP: 159.53.46.144) posted November 18, 2005 15:47:08:
Q:
When did you first start playing drums? Did you take any formal lessons? And do you have any tips on how to get a good blast beat? Sorry if this has been asked in Swedish before.
A:
I started at age 10 and took after school lessons weekly until I was 18. I joined percussion ensembles and eventually a big band during those years. At age 12-13 I started playing in bands, so I've been doing this for a quite long time now.
I couldn't do a proper blast until I started playing the drums in Nasum at age 23 and the only thing that worked for me was to be devoted to making it and practise, practise, practise. Just do it! / Anders

Q:
Hej Anders, Kommer du att göra nån track by track för Grind Finale också? (blir många låtar att gå igenom)
A:
I "Grind Finale" bookleten är den en ganska detaljerad "session by session" som jag lagt ned ganska mycket tid på, så jag kommer nog att avvakta lite med en track by track för alla 152 låtar, men jag utesluter det alltså inte. / Anders

Urban was the math teacher. / Anders

About the auctions:
Which currency do we bid in and does the bid include shipping??
A:
Bid in whatever currency you'd like to pay with. I will pay for shipping. Good question though - I've added this to the auction info. / Anders

Q:
Hallå!
Jag antar att det är du som skrivit recensionen på Project Hates senaste album i Nerikes Allehanda... Är den monstertrummis du syftar på du själv kanske?? Skulle du tacka ja om du blev erbjuden??
A:
Nej, jag är ingen death metal-trummis. / Anders

Q:
On the grind finale hoodies on the back is the words
"fuck the system that fucks you every fucking day"

Where are these words from? - nasum lyrics???

Good to hear you are grinding again with a new project
A:
It's from a song called "Fuck the system" (duh!) that originally is from the Regressive Hostility compilation, soon to be on "Grind Finale". It's my number one favorite line in a Nasum lyric ever! Mieszko wrote it. / Anders
Question from Grinder (IP: 159.53.46.144) posted November 15, 2005 20:41:42:
Q:
This question may have been asked in Swedish already, but was there any material that Nasum had been working on or planning to record prior to Mieszko's death? Any material "left over" ie: rough demo recordings, tracks without vocals yet recorded, etc?
A:
Nope. We were supposed to work on new songs in January. / Anders
Question from JRH (IP: 159.53.110.144) posted November 15, 2005 18:42:43:
Q:
Hey Anders, any chance of getting some high res images of Grind Finale to use for backgrounds, etc? Also, what kind of day jobs did the members of Nasum have throughout your career?
A:
1. Maybe after the release.
2. Everything from math teachers to sound engineers, from sex educators to webdesigners... / Anders
Question from lawan! (IP: 218.111.50.207) posted November 15, 2005 14:23:52:
Q:
"official" we mean "stuff that we printed and sold by ourselves". Stuff printed by record companies, merchandise companies or bootlegers are to be considered "unofficial" in this case.
- it's mean nasum merch on relapse site is unofficial?-
A:
Not really - authorized but not made by the band. I think the passage you've quoted is pretty clear in it's definitions. / Anders
Question from Niclas (IP: 213.113.42.57) posted November 15, 2005 10:04:51:
Q:
Hej.

Okej, är S mycket större än XS? Är lite tveksam om den är för tight bara. Men måtten för längden frampå verkar stämma överrens med de tröjor jag har sedan tidigare.
A:
Jag kan inte svara på det för jag har inte måtten till en S, men det är väl "chest"-måttet du får kolla med andra tröjor. / Anders
Question from Niclas (IP: 213.113.42.57) posted November 14, 2005 23:25:54:
Q:
Hej Anders.

Finns det absolut INGEN chans att du kommer köpa in nya "White N"-tröjor? Skulle väldigt gärna ha en S, men självklart är det bara XS som finns kvar.
A:
Nej, jag kommer inte att göra fler av den modellen. Den hör ihop med "Helvete" och den tiden. Kolla måtten, en XS kanske passar i alla fall. / Anders
Question from lawan! (IP: 60.50.252.161) posted November 14, 2005 16:23:02:
Q:
no idea to make video behind the album. i mean how did nasum record Inhale/exhale, Helvete, Human2.0 and Shift.maybe it become something great to share with nasum fans.just an idea.
A:
Well, that would be great if there actually were some photage of the recordings to show. There are nothing. You'll have to do with my detailed information texts and the track by track breakdowns at the Discography page. / Anders
Question from Kalle (IP: 82.182.114.228) posted November 14, 2005 13:10:32:
Q:
Vad är skillnaden på blastbeats och grind?
A:
Jag skulle påstå att det är samma sak. / Anders
Question from Richard (IP: 194.237.166.199) posted November 13, 2005 18:08:49:
Q:
Tjena!
Jag ska åker över atlanten till New York om en månad. Har du några bra tips på skivbutiker i staden, kanske där man skulle kunna hitta några Nasumrariteter och liknande?
A:
Inte den blekaste. Det är lite skillnad på Örebro och New York... En sak kommer jag dock ihåg från New York-vistelsen 1999 - de har garderober i skivbutikerna där man måste hänga in väskor, jackor etc. / Anders
Question from Cody (IP: 81.226.83.120) posted November 13, 2005 13:03:26:
Q:
Tjena Anders
jag är lite nyfiken på vad det är för "inspelningsutrustning" du har skaffat dig. Du skriver att du typ gör de på laptop'en, är de nåt man själv skulle kunna införskaffa för en billig penning??
A:
Det beror på om du tycker 30 000+ är en billig penning... / Anders
Question from Jon (IP: 68.60.70.16) posted November 13, 2005 01:30:17:
Q:
I noticed new merch on the Relapse Nasum page. Are you going to have the "Grind Finale" hoodie or teeshirt available on nasum.com?
A:
Nope, that's Relapse's merch, but I can tell you that the t-shirt and hood are really, really cool. I love them already. So I can recommend you all to buy them from Relapse's mailorder. / Anders

Minns inte. / Anders

Q:
Tjena!

Ville bara veta om du kör blast-beat(grind?) med 1 pedal eller med 2?
A:
Har svarat på detta tidigare, men det är en fot som gäller. Dubbelfotsgrind låter skit i mina öron. / Anders

Question from lawan! (IP: 60.49.111.4) posted November 10, 2005 02:09:45:
Q:
Hi Anders! bout your new band with all Nasum members, have get the name Band? which label will you use? still Relapse?is this band play like Nasum?
A:
First of all it's a project and not a band. There is no name nor label attached to the project yet. The music is grindcore so it's definitively compairable with Nasum since there's only ex-Nasum members in the project! / Anders
Question from Jeppe (IP: 213.112.166.106) posted November 9, 2005 19:38:59:
Q:
Tjenare! Du råkar inte fått "tjyvlyssna" ngt på det nya som Skitsystem spelade in för några dagar sen? Är nästan lika sugen på det skivsläppet som på Grind Finale!
A:
Nej, jag har inte hört ett knyst! / Anders

Q:
Have you ever lost a cd you really loved and went and bought another copy?
My Nasum-Shift cd just disappeared oneday and I was well pissed off but now im happy as I bought it again.
A:
I re-bought Tool's "Lateralus" because I accidently damaged the CD, but I don't generally lose CD's! / Anders
